Join us for a free group ride to the third best Bastille Day celebration in the world, Bastille Day Fête. We’ll wind through the French Quarter and down Esplanade Ave. to City Park. A bike valet and corral will be provided adjacent to the festival to secure everyone’s bikes.
During the ride, we’ll stop at Tujague’s famous bar for drink specials and Croissant d’Or is offering 1 free croissant to each rider until quantities are exhausted.
Although the ride coincides with the Tour de France, our ride will be at a leisurely pace and is NOT a race.
Need A Bike?
We’re offering you the chance to borrow a Brompton to ride to the festival. Take it home and return it the following day so you can see how well it fits into your daily routine.
If you borrow a bike, Brompton staff will be onsite to answer any questions you may have. Pick ups will be from 12pm to 4pm.
Normally, it costs $65/day to rent a Brompton but we’re offering them for this event for just $29. A portion of the proceeds will go to Alliance Francaise (the organizer of Bastille Day Fête), so come borrow one and see why a Brompton bike is Made For You.
Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter the event? No.
What are my transport/parking options getting to the event? Bike Valet at venue.
